I saw From the Jam 10 years ago when Bruce Foxton and Rick Buckler were both still in it. I got the impression it was just their pension plan. I didn't bother going to their next gig.
You did right. They're like a Jam tribute band...without bothering to try and get a Weller-lookie-likie! The crowd were throwing water at the singer during their encore.

I'm very tempted to get tickets for 'Senior Management' & me for Leeds O2 next year

In case you're wondering.....

Last Sunday, forty years to the day since I first saw them live, Hawkwind's 50th anniversary tour at O2 Academy Glasgow. I was amazed that any of them are still alive, there must be something to be said for 'herbal' remedies. :whistle:
Missed it, ummed and ahed and in the end didn't get tickets. On the night I had a stinking cold and went to bed early any way.

There's only Dave Brock from the original line up anyway (isn't there?). Nic Turner's gigging but I read in Mojo magazine last month that him and Brock are still not talking to each other ^_^

I saw Oysterband and June Tabor at the Sage, Gateshead earlier in November.

At the other end of the spectrum, I've got tickets to see Idles at Glasgow Barrowlands next Monday :smile:

Tim Blake was 'guesting' on theramin and keyboards. He was also in the lineup when I saw them in '79.

Last night was The Comet is Coming at Norwich Arts Centre - a fantastic wall of sax, synths & drums jazz noise.

The support act was Leafcutter John - notable for his use of bicycle lights in his performance

On friday night i went to the Kentish Town Forum to see Primal Scream perform their Greatest hits tour.It was my 46th gig of the year and definitely in the top 3 for me.

Last gig of the year for me - Stealing Sheep at Norwich Arts Centre. A brilliant mix of music and a bit of performance art thrown in, but it was a bit of a risk throwing an inflatable sheep into a (mostly) Norfolk audience for the last bit!

12 gigs already lined up for next year up to mid April.

Underworld at Wembley Arena last night. Awesome. They recently completed 'Drift', a project to release new music every single week for an entire year (I bought the box set- 7 CDs, a Blu-ray of all the video content, an 80 page book & download code for everything released after the box went into production). Karl reckoned it was the best thing he & Rick had done in their career (and they're going to start again!!) I'd agree, and they set themselves a high bar! As for the show...2 hours of wall-to-wall brilliance, and Rick did a 75 minute DJ set by way of warmup!
